The ability to keep alive entrepreneurial spirit among the owner-managers of family businesses is essential for the growth and development of these businesses. The unique characteristics of a family business can both foster and hinder the transmission of entrepreneurial spirit. The crucial factor in this transmission lies in the quality of interactions between the owner-manager and his/her successor.
